September 24, 2022 | 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Rassbach Museum in Menomonie's Wakanda Park
Join us as more than 20 local collectors share their treasures with the public, from coins and stamps, to sports, movie and music memorabilia and and vintage fishing lures. Explore unusual and fascinating items with some of the area's top collectors and learn why collections are so important.
In addition to current collections, the historical society will exhibit part of a collection of souvenirs that Henry Eno Knapp and his wife Jessie brought home from their worldwide travels in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
A raffle of simple 'starter-collections' (coins, sports and Pokemon cards, and the like) will be held.
This event is an opportunity for you to share your collection (and your knowledge and enthusiasm) with the community and perhaps inspire others to join in collecting. To register as an exhibitor (all ages are invited), complete the form below (or available at the museum). Applications are due by September 3. Drop off a completed registration form at 1820 John Russell Road in Menomonie’s Wakanda Park (11 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday – Saturday) or mail it to DCHS, PO BOX 633, Menomonie, WI 54751, ATTN Sofi
We will provide each participant with a 6-foot table and 1-2 chairs to display your collection. Please stay within this area.

We will provide coffee and light snacks in the kitchen area.
Do not bring food into the Collectors Day event exhibit area.
